What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 6, Episode 4 “Bay of Squids” (B-)

This show really is over-the-top, but it does make for entertaining television. I didn’t even realize until I sat down to write this review that Sara and Gary didn’t appear at all in the hour, but we did get a chance to see Kayla after she ended up in 1962 right at the heart of the Cuban Missile Crisis. I had a feeling that she might eventually transform into a human so that she could better communicate with Mick, but I did not foresee that she would choose a form that would so entice him. He’s not going to be happy when he learns that she was formerly engaged to Gary, but this should be a fun ride back to rendezvous with those two. Mick definitely shouldn’t run missions going forward, but he did propel the legends much closer than they’ve been to finding Sara, even if he nearly started a world war in the process. Behrad’s stoner vibes were perfect for Fidel Castro, though his Jay Guevara charade only lasted a short while until his very real cousin Che called. Nate and Zari had more success with JFK, whose enthusiasm for football and Harvard was exaggerated for comedic effect when they had to literally get the nuclear football back from the warmongering General Kilgore. The opening scene with Nate happening upon an unbeautified Zari was indicative of the inevitable romance that’s going to happen between them, especially considering how absent Constantine has been lately. You’d think this team could use all the members it’s got considering their current challenging quest to find their leader.
